For non-horseback riders like us, doing the Destination Lakehead Riding tour with Brewster Stables (located at the front of the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise) was a great way to experience the natural beauty of Lake Louise. We very much enjoyed our time (~2 hours) with our guide Caleb and our horses (Speckles and Traveler) and found the tour to be... More

Great trail ride to Plain of 6. Our guide Ann was great. The ride was into rock covered moraine, difficult for horse and experienced, but not recently seasoned, riders. We took our Motrin but so worth the trek. Heard the BOOM!, turned around to see the avalanche. Pretty cool. Beautiful views of the P6 and Lake Louise. Well worth the... More

I went on the 'Explore Lake Louise' trip and although the place was spectacular, I felt that I was just one number in the huge tourism machine of Brewster Travel. I was picked up at my hotel, but then it wasn't explained that you would then be taken to their depot where you had to transfer coaches and wait for... More

Best adventure ever in Banff, Canmore area. Nice Gondola ride and relaxing walk up the mountain. I enjoyed taking pictures in the Gondola and up the mountain. I was lucky enough to see few moose during my gondola ride. The stall was very friendly and welcoming. I recommend the GONDOLA Tour its worth the price.

By far the most memorable trip riding horseback through the Canadian Rockies. Although it was a few years ago, we both agree that it is our favorite trip. Since then I have travelled throughout SE Asia and saw many sights, but this trip still tops them all. Gorgeous scenery, great weather, friendly staff and cowboys, quiet, calm serene environment, good... More

Delicious drinks, delicious dinner. The gondola was a good time, with a nice walk at the top. Saw some mountain goats also.

My husband and I had a wonderful time today on horseback with Brewster Adventures. I am a nervous rider after a nasty fall about 4 years ago (this was my first time riding since) and the horses were very slow and careful and didn't spook once. We were alone with our guide Sarah who was such a lovely young lady... More

My mom has MS and has difficulty walking and very little energy. She had always wanted to go to the tea house at Lake Agnes, but unfortunately never made it and then this horrible, stupid disease struck her, so she thought she would never get to see it. I thought horseback might be a way to make her dream come... More

Sarah, my guide, took me out on a two hour ride to the end of Lake Louise. We chatted the whole time, she gave lots of information about the land and the glaciers, the animals and the habitats. I was very comfortable and enjoyed it completely! If you go, ask for Sarah from Ontario, if she is still there!
